to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look

with what president obama has done. >> if michelle obama did not move the needle or bill clinton came up short, the president will have to be the difference maker. >> i have said consistently, you have it within six swing states, but virginia and ohio are the key ones. >> va., and as this -- they want results. they want things that work, not just rhetoric and good speeches, they're going to see what happens to make their life better for me and my family. >> and other obama aide says it they believe they when virginia, they think they will win it all. the pressure is felt on both sides with the gop trying to react to that philosophy. met romney was there last week and ann romney will be in leesburg tomorrow. obama is opening up to more campaign offices. it's a big night and we will have to wait and see whether or not the president can deliver on all of those expectations. >> we look forward to your reporting this evening. >> that romney remains in vermont practicing for the upcoming debates with his sparring partner rob portman of ohio. meanwhile, romney left campaigning duties
that we fell in love with really above everything else about barack obama and about michelle obama is what they say about the american dream. here are two people from the unlikeliest of backgrounds raising themselves up, attaining huge incredible personal success and still remaining committed first and foremost to their family and their community. one moment in particular that struck me in her speech is she talked about coming from humble means, but it didn't sound like a hardship. she spoke of the joy and the pride and the hard work in that household, which i think is a powerful rebuttal to the sort of you didn't build that narrative that comes from the republicans and the idea that poor people who require government assistance are lazy, shiftless, dependent. no, there was pride and there was responsibility in that household. >> well, you know, i think it was a great speech. she looked great. she sounded great. in some senses, i would say that michelle obama is a much moral effective speaker than even her husband who is a very gifted speaker. i couldn't find her eyes on the prompter. she
